Cypress vs Jasmine: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cypress as "Better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser". Cypress is a front end automated testing application created for the modern web. Cypress is built on a new architecture and runs in the same run-loop as the application being tested. As a result Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Cypress works on any front-end framework or website. On the other hand, Jasmine is detailed as "DOM-less simple JavaScript testing framework". Jasmine is a Behavior Driven Development testing framework for JavaScript. It does not rely on browsers, DOM, or any JavaScript framework. Thus it's suited for websites, Node.js projects, or anywhere that JavaScript can run.

Cypress and Jasmine can be primarily classified as "Javascript Testing Framework" tools.

"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider Cypress over the competitors, whereas "Can also be used for tdd " was stated as the key factor in picking Jasmine.

Jasmine is an open source tool with 14.4K GitHub stars and 2.12K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Jasmine's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Jasmine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 143 company stacks & 75 developers stacks; compared to Cypress, which is listed in 55 company stacks and 43 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Cypress and Jasmine?
    Selenium
    Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
    TestCafe
    It is a pure node.js end-to-end solution for testing web apps. It takes care of all the stages: starting browsers, running tests, gathering test results and generating reports.
    Puppeteer
    Puppeteer is a Node library which provides a high-level API to control headless Chrome over the DevTools Protocol. It can also be configured to use full (non-headless) Chrome.
    Mocha
    Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on node.js and the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun. Mocha tests run serially, allowing for flexible and accurate reporting, while mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases.
    Jest
    Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.

    We are in the process of adopting Next.js as our React framework and using Storybook to help build our React components in isolation. This new part of our frontend is written in TypeScript, and we use Emotion for CSS/styling. For delivering data, we use GraphQL and Apollo. Jest, Percy, and Cypress are used for testing.

    This is a trending topic on Automation testing for E2E web applications.

    I have used Protractor and Jasmine for automation testing frameworks in JavaScript by using the Selenium web driver manager.

    Now, new guy in town Cypress does not use Selenium and runs directly in your app without any json wire protrocol, but it does not support parallel testing or mobile testing.

    Have you experienced both? Should I stick with old and known ?

    We use Jasmine for all our front-end web interface tests. Works great for testing all our Angular components.
